Project Eternity Hits $3.5 Million Funding Milestone

Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity Kickstarter has hit a major milestone in its last few hours – it has surpassed Double Fine's Adventure game Kickstarter to become the highest funded game project in history. The crowd funding campaign for Obsidian's old-school RPG now sits at just a little over $3.5 million with just nine more hours to go. They hit this number with the help of 68,207 backers. Originally Obsidian was looking for $1.1 million. Obviously all this extra money was driven by promises made for meeting certain stretch goal milestones.

By comparison, Double Fine's Adventure Game Kickstarter managed to hit $3.3 million by the time it closed earlier this year.

By meeting this latest stretch goal, Obsidian is able to add another huge city into the game. You can learn more about that in the video to your left. If you haven't contributed to the Kickstarter yet and you want to, there's still a small window of opportunity to do so here.
